Jazz On Wednesdays brings you the magic of world jazz, this week featuring saxophonist Linda Fredriksson and her recent album, Juniper. Listen to Jazz Sketches with Robert Vale at noon, and Planet Jazz with Xavier Bichon at 7pm.
Saxophone player Linda Fredriksson stands out amongst the Finnish jazz artists, both locally and internationally. Fredriksson has a versatile and unique style ranging across genres making them one of the most interesting musicians.
With their solo project Juniper, Fredriksson steps forth as a composer and a leader unveiling the music of their “shy and quiet” side. The end result is described as an honest, personal singer-songwriter album, performed by an instrumental jazz band.
